Recorded on July 25, 1925 in New York City. The Ramblers on this recording includes Poole on vocals and banjo, Posey Rorer on fiddle and Norman Woodlief on guitar. This a gambling tune, with many floating lines that have appeared in older tunes. It is thought that the phrase "let your deal go down" refers to a popular card game among gamblers during the early part of the 20th Century called the Georgia Skin Game.

This has the same theme as Jerry Garcia's Deal. It is amazing how much inspiration he got from this early music and how you never stop seeing how many literary and musical references he worked in to his repertoire. This is a great resource, thank you for making it available!
